Quotes of the day

posted at 9:30 pm on February 27, 2010 by Allahpundit

“I, for one, genuinely wish that the climate crisis were an illusion. But unfortunately, the reality of the danger we are courting has not been changed by the discovery of at least two mistakes in the thousands of pages of careful scientific work over the last 22 years by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. In fact, the crisis is still growing because we are continuing to dump 90 million tons of global-warming pollution every 24 hours into the atmosphere — as if it were an open sewer…

“But the scientific enterprise will never be completely free of mistakes. What is important is that the overwhelming consensus on global warming remains unchanged. It is also worth noting that the panel’s scientists — acting in good faith on the best information then available to them — probably underestimated the range of sea-level rise in this century, the speed with which the Arctic ice cap is disappearing and the speed with which some of the large glacial flows in Antarctica and Greenland are melting and racing to the sea…

“The heavy snowfalls this month have been used as fodder for ridicule by those who argue that global warming is a myth, yet scientists have long pointed out that warmer global temperatures have been increasing the rate of evaporation from the oceans, putting significantly more moisture into the atmosphere — thus causing heavier downfalls of both rain and snow in particular regions, including the Northeastern United States. Just as it’s important not to miss the forest for the trees, neither should we miss the climate for the snowstorm…

“From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption. After all has been said and so little done, the truth about the climate crisis — inconvenient as ever — must still be faced.”

***
“The former vice president apparently finds it inconvenient even to answer calls to testify before the U.S. Senate. You can call him Al . . . but he won’t call back

“After days of calls and e-mails by FoxNews.com to the ‘Al Gore Support Center’ — located online at algoresupportcenter.com and in the real world in Carthage, Tenn — a spokeswoman for Gore declined to comment on the matter.

“‘Thank you for your kind request,’ wrote Kalee Kreider. ‘Unfortunately, Mr. Gore’s schedule is extremely overbooked and we’re unable to offer any availability. It’s very difficult to decline invitations such as yours, but it’s an unfortunate inevitability of the growing influence of the climate-crisis message and the demand on Mr. Gore’s time. We do apologize, but thanks for your interest.’”

***
“At the first opportunity for audience participation just several minutes into the proceeding, a longtime and well-known Apple shareholder–some would say gadfly–who introduced himself as Shelton Ehrlich, stood at the microphone and urged against Gore’s re-election to the board. Gore ‘has become a laughingstock. The glaciers have not melted,’ Ehrlich said, referring to Gore’s views on global warming. ‘If his advice he gives to Apple is as faulty as his views on the environment then he doesn’t need to be re-elected.’”

I thought we were supposed to get droughts? Regardless of what happens, these people blame it on global warming. If the sea level started to drop, I have no doubt they’d also blame it on global warming.

And the Rev Al’s ecovangelist revival keeps right on rolling. All of your climate sins can be forgiven, for a donation in the form of the purchase of carbon credits, of course. The world will end soon, and only you can stop it, by giving money to Al, of course. Do not let a few overzealous acolytes of the church of Gaia interfere with your faith that man is a parasite, and our Mother Earth is ill.

This will never go away. Algore and his cohorts have too much at stake. Dammit, he’s this close to being a billionaire. We need more real scientists to come forward if nothing but in indignation at the perversion of their own work.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Three senators are seeking to radically overhaul stalled climate legislation by proposing to dump broad cap-and-trade provisions and take a sector by sector approach to cutting greenhouse gas emissions, a White House official and leading U.S. newspaper reported.

Wethal on February 27, 2010 at 9:45 PM

Wait a minute–Global Warming is a religion–doesn’t that mean that Gore is not an “intellectual” according to the latest “study”???

lovingmyUSA on February 27, 2010 at 9:45 PM

Because the world still relies on leadership from the United States, the failure by the Senate to pass legislation intended to cap American emissions before the Copenhagen meeting guaranteed that the outcome would fall far short of even the minimum needed to build momentum toward a meaningful solution.

Maybe we can provide the kind of leadership the Clinton-Gore administration offered on the Kyoto Protocol?

That would be fine with me.

cs89 on February 27, 2010 at 9:45 PM

Does Clinton ever talk to this sack of crap anymore?

Lanceman on February 27, 2010 at 9:46 PM

..scientists have long pointed out that warmer global temperatures have been increasing the rate of evaporation from the oceans, putting significantly more moisture into the atmosphere — thus causing heavier downfalls of both rain and snow in particular regions, including the Northeastern United States. Just as it’s important not to miss the forest for the trees, neither should we miss the climate for the snowstorm…

So climate change/global warming results in more moisture, which results in heavier snow falls, right?

Well, despite the recent heavy snowstorms, the exact opposite has taken place. For instance, this Winter’s snowfall (including two feet worth this week) is significantly LOWER than in many years past. In fact, it’s normal for Northern New England to get 8-10 feet of snow per year; sometimes quite a bit more.

Thus far this year we’ve recorded 82 inches when – based on the “expert’s” opinion – we should be up in the 120 inch range.

So which is it? Rhetorical question, I know.

GoldenEagle4444 on February 27, 2010 at 9:46 PM

If it hadn’t snowed at all in the Eastern U. S. this winter, ALGORE would have found a camera to solemnly report that ‘global warming’ is the cause. But now that there is record snowfall for 2009-2010 ‘global warming’ is still the cause.

So does his analysis mean that the less-than-regular snowfall for the 2008-2009 winter indicates that ‘global warming’ is dissipating? Weren’t the oceans evaporating into the atmosphere last year, too?

Help me – I’m confused!

the Catholic Church used to have those, they were called “indulgences”, if you were rich you could get away with every “sin” the church could imagine if you bought one. (it made the Priesthood extremely rich and corrupt) It can be argued that indulgences directly led to the Reformation and the 100 years war.

Let’s face it, none of these guys will ever admit they are wrong. They have their reputations wrapped up in this, and the last thing any liberal ever wants to do is admit they are wrong and the troglodytes are right. It’s going to take a new generation of scientists coming along who don’t have their reputations wedded to this nonsense and want to make a name for themselves by dethroning the old guard.

Mark1971 on February 27, 2010 at 9:49 PM

El_Terrible on February 27, 2010 at 9:49 PM

The “burden of his brillance” must be to much for Gore too. Seriously though, the man can’t cop to this being a farce. If he does he will lose his fortune from all the lawsuits. Gore couldn’t survive as a common folk.

truetexan on February 27, 2010 at 9:49 PM

the growing influence of the climate-crisis message

Yeah, the time demands on the 1st Carbon Billionaire must be huge.

The only litmus test that I use to determine climate seriousness is nuclear power (e.g. if you vote for NextGen nuke, you win)

If you vote for Wind you are a loser.
If you want to paint roofs white, then yes, you are a loser.

and so on.

Which is why being laughed at and the butt of late night jokes will not be enough. Gore needs to first go before the Senate to answer questions so that Cap and Trade can be derailed and then all the investors in this Carbon Offset need to sue him for all he is worth and finally he needs to go on trial for fraud against humanity and be put in jail.

And that goes for every leader/scientist of the GW crowd.

Published: February 27, 2010

I’m wonder why this was printed on the ‘OPINION’ page, and not on page #1, where the facts would have to have been checked…?

We’re all going to fry if we don’t change our ways yet the lights in all his trees still burn at night (I live nearby) so that he can find his way home from his latest private jet trip around the world…but I’m sure he has bought carbon offsets so that he can sleep easy at night with the warm glow of well lit trees illuminating his habitat. Oh, but wait I’m sure it was just one of those little errors that he made when he forgot to save the planet by turning his own lights off.

trubble on February 27, 2010 at 10:03 PM

The lags in the global climate system, including the buildup of heat in the oceans from which it is slowly reintroduced into the atmosphere

That is nonsense. NASA admitted a couple of years ago that they can’t find any excess heat in the ocean. They can’t even pretend it’s there because they’d have to tell us where in the ocean it is and we could just drop a thermometer there to check for ourselves.

Gore is toast. He can’t even offer solutions for his own hoax anymore because he’s anti-nuclear. He’s not invested in nuclear so it can’t be part of the “cure”. He should be directing criticism towards Obama now after Obama claimed to support building more nukes. To be pro-nuke now would mean he wasted decades, so he is done.

Buddahpundit on February 27, 2010 at 10:03 PM

Even for Al Gore I’m stunned he had the unmitigated gall to write that editorial. The guy is either delusional or the second biggest liar in the country.

As for this statement:

From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption.

That’s blasphemous (in addition to it being ridiculous) & he ought to know that. He was once, long ago, a Baptist.

Meanwhile, that run-away budget that can be fixed by cutting government back, they don’t care about.

Wake up!

What happened when when BO, the Big O and MO went to Copenhagan? Why did they go? Think Daley, Jarett, the Machine.

What do you think is going on? And why did BO get involved with setting up this stupid Carbon Credit Exchange?

He doesn’t care if he’s a one term president. It was all the goodies that were to result. Unfortunately, climate change is falling apart. They lost the Olympics for Chicago (tearing down projects and rebuilding with Federal money – our money).

This is all about lining pockets, and the Messiah is right in there, folks.

Looking at the transformation of Al Gore’s face and physicality over the years reminds me of the public service ads about Meth addiction, showing snapshots of people’s descent into the drug. In Gore’s case, a different drug, but one can see an equal degeneration, only instead of the hollowed-out, hunted look of meth one detects a sort of bloated, crazy-eyed, weirdly animalistic-warlock quality of a man feeding too long and too much on lies and lying (along with a lot of lobster bisque and French wine).

From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption.

Scary Words!

Al Gore is not what one would describe as a historical or literary scholar. Medieval Warming Period.

The rubber room is ready. Somebody who has Al Gore’s ear needs to tell him that his nakedness will no longer be tolerated or funded. Those consensus claims are riddled with an abundance of faked orgasmic climate change climaxes. It feels good while you’re fooling them into believing it happened but when asked to show proof beyond a shadow of a doubt, you just repeat the same dribble that got you into this mess. The American people want this mess cleaned up. Your walking around privileges must be reined in. Put him in a rubber room and let him calculate the amount of time it will take to fill the hermetically sealed room with CO2. No calculaters, he must do this in long crayon using his toes. Oh, did I forget to mention the special jacket he’ll be required to wear? It has really long sleeves that has combination lock buttons in the back.

I plan on getting a woodburning stove and BURNING trees–how much is it worth to you Gorby?

“‘Thank you for your kind request,’ wrote Kalee Kreider. ‘Unfortunately, Mr. Gore’s schedule is extremely overbooked and we’re unable to offer any availability.

Al’s busy trying to sell off his carbon credits in places they don’t get current news. He hopes to clean out his position before the market crashes.

No. But I need to go get booze to deal with the obaminations, or the obaminable strawman, if you will.

Lanceman on February 27, 2010 at 10:17 PM

A good time to remind you all that “algor” means “cold” in Latin.
